LOS ANGELES, May 29 (UPI) -- The executive producer of NBC comedy "Scrubs" has laid to rest rumors star Sarah Chalke will not return next season.

Executive producer Bill Lawrence said Chalke, who portrays Dr. Elliott Reid on the hospital comedy, would be back next fall, despite her character's exit from Sacred Heart Hospital, TV Guide reported Sunday.

"I imagine we'll see (Chalke) the same amount as before," he said, adding that Elliott's new job will allow her to "reinvent" herself. "Even though she'll still be friends with (central characters J.D., Turk and Carla), she can completely redefine who she is."
